building a cross compiler under MinGW snag in collect2

rm -f collect2.exe
gcc -DCROSS_COMPILE -DIN_GCC     -g -O2  -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -o collect2.exe collect2.o tlink.o hash.o intl.o underscore.o version.o  obstack.o       -ladvapi32 ../libiberty/libiberty.a
collect2.o: In function `handler':
C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\src\gcc-2.95.3\gcc/collect2.c:527: undefined reference to `kill'
collect2.o: In function `scan_prog_file':
C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\src\gcc-2.95.3\gcc/collect2.c:2269: undefined reference to `pipe'
C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\src\gcc-2.95.3\gcc/collect2.c:2292: undefined reference to `fork'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [collect2.exe] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/gcc-2.95.3/gcc'
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2

Ugh, isn’t that annoying? Well it turns out from the mailing list

The mingw32-hosted GCCs does not need ‘collect2.exe’ hence
set USE_COLLECT2= nothing (empty) in the <gcc_obj_dir>/gcc/Makefile

This needs to be fixed in GCC mainlne.

And the other half….

fixincl.c:316: error: `SIGQUIT' undeclared (first use in this function)
fixincl.c:316: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
fixincl.c:316: error: for each function it appears in.)
fixincl.c:323: error: `SIGALRM' undeclared (first use in this function)
fixincl.c: In function `internal_fix':
fixincl.c:808: warning: implicit declaration of function `pipe'
fixincl.c:816: warning: implicit declaration of function `fork'
fixincl.c:845: warning: implicit declaration of function `sleep'
fixincl.c:860: warning: implicit declaration of function `fcntl'
fixincl.c:860: error: `F_DUPFD' undeclared (first use in this function

Which is fixed by changing

STMP_FIXINC = stmp-fixinc

into

STMP_FIXINC =

Oops!

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
